Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: E149
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 1 year ago

 The food on a Carnival Cruise was a lot like a Golden Corral three years ago. Mass produced cafeteria food. Carnival has since dropped the quality to a public school cafeteria level. The service was substandard as many of the crew looked bored and unhappy. The Cheers program is a disaster waiting to happen . People felt challenged  to drink to the 15 drink limited. They turned into screaming drunks. I fled to my cabin to avoid their inappropriate behavior. Carnival should spend more time making a pleasant cruise experience and less effort trying to milk every last dollar from their passengers.

Comedians were okay. Band was great. Shows were like a bad high school musical.
